Title

State, War, and Navy Building

Description

Located in Washington, DC, this impressive building was designed in the French Second Empire style. As its name suggests the structure housed several important departments that eventually outgrew available space. The building still stands today, known as the "Old Executive Office Building" or the "Eisenhower Executive Office Building."

The image appears in OpenValley as part of an exhibit on Isabel Fraser Harmon's work during World War I at a YWCA Hostess House located at Camp Meade, MD.
